Image for the poem Eternia


the dark laugh. it watched the woman
as she rose from slumber
deadly yes but vulnerable
the darkness has been at work while she rest
she spied the night observing her
she worried not after its devices

woven throughout the chronicles of time is her essence
she would make her appointed destination
while the dark schemed she liberated souls

the Goddess of Eternia
her power reach deep inside the nine circles of hell
freeing peoples from their enslavement
slaves to their beliefs, they believed they belong there

all the while the Raphium race feast off their pain
hell generated every terror
imagined and not imagined by mankind
it is a place of torture

human minds are harvested early
and programmed to be slaves of their beliefs
this produces the wine of sorrow the Raphs crave
the Goddess herself is from the dark star they originate from
but she is a desirous of knowledge
so she signed on for the human experience
she sleeps, eats, drinks humanity

during her time here she has fallen in love
with the overseer of this realm
she is evolving in true understanding of what it is to be human
but she is still lacking in compassion

her God is beautiful to her but it is ever a clash of wills
he is grooming her to be his
she longs to be in submission to him
but betrayal is ever on her mind

she submits then wrestles back her power
he has touched only parts of her
she longs to succumb to him wholly

will she take the tortured and go?
or will she stay and herself be under threat of the same trap?

hell and the nine circles
she senses his hunger for her suffering
it will be war then

a war of all ages
she is prepared
